let’s shape up with a post-a-day! A friend of mine is telling me she is so busy she doesn’t have time for waxing, but I will make sure I laugh and express myself and feelings in an every day-to-day basis!
So time for waxing, laughing, exercise, and on the contrary, no time for unproductive or self-doubt thoughts.
No time for self-pity and comparisons, what do I say when I am asked, what do you do?
I do as I go.
I have a plan.
It is taking shape as I go.
What is the plan for the day?
Breathing in and out, and having coffee in the morning, in one of my favorite places.
Only cleaners on the road and construction workers are out at 7.00 am.
I also run into a friend and his family.
Oh, yes, I am going to read a poem just to change.
Yes, I will no longer run and hide, I will get out there and find who would like to join in and work on a collective art project with me!
September first, I feel it’s time to take a chance and jump in.
To begin with, I am going to ask for help.
Here I am, with an idea. Or lots of ideas.
How can they become reality?
With other people’s help. People who would join, transform and contribute to them.
Am I afraid of people who don’t like me on my field?
Yes, but it is time to go and find some others.
There is no time for false modesty here.
Let’s go and have this project happen!
I have just got back to London and to a beautiful sunshine, although the temperature is lower than at the South of France. And here is a pile of bills waiting for me, and a very busy month ahead.
Somehow, and without no tangible reason, I am very optimistic. I take a break and enjoy the sunshine and a cup of coffee before dealing with re-al-ity.
I feel that I have something special to contribute to the world, through my art, and presence.
Yes, I have been a misunderstood genius, but I will come into terms with my co-humans into this life even if I have to go around the world.
To begin with, I realise I need a personal assistant 😉
The second thing, is to look into the priorities and not the urgent things.
yes, I am sleepy in the morning, I have come and gone three times to get my cup of coffee and glass of water in the garden. I am staring at my computer screen and everyone else around is asleep.
There is a piece of writing to finish first.
And this is a priority in the Samurai new attitude 😉
the weather is beautiful in the South of France, and just to celebrate our last summer month, a song on heat…
Isn’t it great to go for a swim on a hot day of August? Enough of London and of rainy days, welcome South of France!
This is not exactly where I have been but being close to the sea is enough to recharge my energy.
And yes, in my new Samurai attitude I do wake up early and I have a lot of work to do. There is a deadline for the 17th of August already and another one beginning of September.
But I take it easy 🙂
my blog-friend David Rogers suggested his book : Fighting to win: Samurai Techniques for your work and life, with valuable tools. I will let you know how it goes David!
You might think, is this the best season, August, everyone is taking some time off, but, I think this IS the Time. David says his tools are applicable to anybody in any situation. I will let you know how it goes 😉
there are people enjoying the beach, their holiday or far niente, and I am deep in thought on the best strategy for my career.
Could you advise me on this?
How do you act in order to make a place for you in a highly competitive and closed artistic world?
Any ideas for underdogs?
It could be from literature, every day life, business… art…
I am all ears.
So, bring it on!
P.S. Apparently the Game of Thrones has some interesting suggestions.
London is chilly and I am up in the morning, between job applications, dreams and plans.
Where is love?
Where are holidays?
Are we going to experience bliss in this lifetime?
I am up at 6.00 and at my favorite café at 9.00 writing. Parisian habits…
I am ready to go to the end of the world and back and get whatever is fit for me.
Or create it.
So I haven’t been successful up to now, but was there something I particularly liked?
I think that I am ready to be to a place that appreciates me for what I am.
And where I can Become.
London seems less crowded than usual, and I started the day on a holiday mood, meaning, I watched pictures of remote islands on my computer screne.
Now, since I am not there yet, I need to pull myself together and see how I will make the best of this month.
I have advanced a lot in July, but there isn’t anything tangible yet.
Should I try to forget myself in daily reveries, drink and use other abusive substances, (i.e. chocolate)?
Or should I take a different perspective and try again?
I will take the second option.
The positive thing is I got some feedback in July, so I can modify my profile to put into advantage my best aspects.
And a glass of wine could also help, especially if it is shared with friends 😉
